About TFL Extended – Audience Design
TFL Extended – Audience Design
is a 4-day long intensive workshop addressed to international audiovisual professionals wishing to gain solid hands-on experience through a workshop framework, creating audience engagement strategies for Feature Film projects in various stages of development.

10 participants will work together in two groups on two different Feature Film projects. Participants will develop and draft an innovative audience engagement strategy to inspire the film's future distribution together with their tutors and with the team of the project (producers and directors).

The workshop aims at sharing insights into steps that help build a concrete strategy to later support the sales and distribution of a film.

Participants will understand how to use audience engagement in the development and later promotion of a film are an important part of the new film production and distribution landscape. Reaching out to and communicating with possible audiences at an early stage is an aspect that benefits the project, exploring from a multi-angle approach

Audience Designers will work as a group, individually, and in small teams, as well as collaborating with the film project’s team. A tutor will guide them through the development, research, writing and assessment process.
